Cold As Ice
Mar 10th - Mar 17th
He wants her to be his lover…she wants to be his forever.
Nick Coalson is abrasive, arrogant, and an absolute dynamo in the bedroom. Problem is, he knows it.
Rebecca Morgan is sweet, shy, and immensely attracted to Nick, but he's trouble in tight jeans and she knows it.
When Nick saves Rebecca from an assassin’s bullet, he sets his sights on the shy partner of a detective agency. But he mistakes her kindness for weakness, and learns the hard way that although she may seem submissive, she’s a voluptuous bundle of intelligence and determination.
Rebecca tries to hide her feelings for Nick because he’s the kind of man that makes a smart girl do stupid things. After a sensual encounter, Nick grows distant, stating he wants a lover, not a wife. Rebecca realizes she’s going to need to keep her wits about her if she wants Nick forever because it’s too easy to lose herself to his dominant personality.
When a stranger offers to help her win Nick back, she accepts although she wonders what’s in it for him. But Nick thinks it’s too late for his love when he witnesses a tender moment between Rebecca and another man. His head tells him to step aside, but his heart aches for her tender touch.
And as the killer closes in on the Coalson family, Nick wonders if it will be too late to save not only their love, but their very lives?
Review by Kathy
This series just keeps getting better and better! The storyline grabs you and keeps you tied to it as you continue to turn page after page. It continues with the trouble that has plagued this tight knit family since book one and places each one of the single brothers with their one and only, and this time it's Rebecca and Nick's story that comes into play as they struggle with their relationship, each in their own way. The wonderful, well developed characters are all back in this book so we are able to catch up with them as well as the angst between Nick and Rebecca as they work to find exactly what they are to each other, well that's more on Nick's part as Rebecca knows what she wants. The danger that the family has been in the first books is still lurking and is still a very clear and present danger for all involved. Pye is still out there, waiting to make his move, but the question is; what is that move and when and where will that happen. New characters are introduced in this book, good ones and bad ones, and those are the ones that you will have to keep an eye on, because just when you think it's safe to breathe easy; it's not!
Nick and Rebecca's relationship will have you pulling your hair out and will make you want to reach into the book and smack Nick a few times as well as giving a few taps to Rebecca as well. But when these two are together, it's sparks flying and heat that is all consuming.
I highly recommend this book, but you will need to read the whole series to know what is going on, and you won't be disappointed in doing so.
